Kevin Earnest Candidate for VPCM kevin@tbsigma.org kearnest.weebly.

com To the Members of Tau Beta Sigma: It is my honor to announce my candidacy for National Vice-President for Colonization and Membership, 2013-2015. By continuing my service on the National Council, I will have the opportunity to pay forward all the experiences that the Sorority has given me to the future membership of the organization. When elected to this position, I will be able to leverage my knowledge of today’s Sorority and how we have progressed toward our vision and mission statements through our national programs repertoire to promote the organization to potential new colonies and new members. As a professional in the consultant engineering sector, I have direct experience at developing relationships with clients and potential clients into projects for our firm; this experience will correlate directly with my ability to develop connections with university band directors and faculty to generate colonies for Tau Beta Sigma. The Sorority has evolved over the past decade; it has grown better and stronger. I am a product of that growth and will be able to reflect it through my handling of chapter membership affairs and colonization. I have experienced the struggles of chapters at small schools during my undergraduate program at Ohio Northern University; I have experienced the struggles of chapters at big schools during my graduate program at Purdue University. And over the past biennium, I have experienced the struggles of many chapters in between as I have worked with many of you. As a relatively young alumnus, I can more easily reflect you in my daily relationships within this Sorority. Throughout the coming weeks, my goals and plans, organizational and professional resumes, various white papers regarding specific membership items, and my personal biography will be uploaded to my website: kearnest.weebly.com. I invite you to visit this site frequently as more information will be added as National Convention approaches. Once we arrive at National Convention, this website will be used to answer the “Top Questions” of each day for you to review. I have demonstrated my fulfillment of the basic qualifications for the National Council through the review by the 2011 National Nominations Committee. Join me as we Start A Revolution in Tau Beta Sigma For Greater Bands. In The Bond, May 1, 2013
